  • Monitoring The Silver Premium 2 comments
    Jan 25, 2013 12:31 PM

    I have been monitoring the Engelhard bullion price to spot silver, but I don't see any significant movement here.

    So I'm going to stop monitoring this.

    Chart 1: Silver Premium Engelhard bullion to spot silver

    On the other hand, I'll now monitor a real dealer of silver, namely: First Majestic Silver Corp.

    Their selling price is displayed every day here. Today it stands at: $33.25/ounce. The spot price of silver is $31.22/ounce. That's a 6.5% premium.

    I think this tells me more about the silver premium than the Engelhard bullion price.

    Disclosure: I am long AGQ.

    Author’s reply » I have no idea where to find Chinese info, but I'll try. I'm also monitoring the 100+ quantity coins on APMEX, I'll add the 1-19 quantity coins on APMEX too.
